Tonight’s theme was an homage to friendship. Today, we have algorithms and artificial intelligence suggesting new music that we may like. While this technology represents bridging us to new music that we wouldn’t come into contact with, we miss the days of friends sitting around, sharing new music, and collectively discovering new artists.

Recently, a friend visited from Cuba (She’s originally from Israel). She brought gigs of music. We shared new artists with one another. Tonight’s show came from that folder It was new music to me, and thought it made a great theme for the radio show. Michal, thanks for the tunes!
